Professionalising Groundwater Development in Zambia

Short Course on Drilling Supervision

A Short Course on Drilling Supervision took place in Zambia in July 2018 as part of the Project Collaboration Agreement (PCA) 2017-2019 between UNICEF and Skat Foundation. The learning objectives of the training course were that by the end of the course, the participants would:

  • Understand the importance of effective supervision in borehole construction for sustainability
  • Understand the steps and detailed actions required in full time supervision
  • Understand the steps and detailed actions required in part time supervision
  • Be able to quality assure and certify drilling records
  • Be in a position to undertake borehole construction supervision

Developing and running the course was made possible with financial support from UNICEF Programme Division, Skat Foundation and UNICEF Zambia. The course was carried out on behalf of the Ministry of Water Development, Sanitation and Environmental Protection Zambia.

A short video documentary of the course is available here:
